The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, … released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a “sounds-like” type of browsing and more up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license interact with fellow sound-artists!
They are looking for institutions and schools who want to help them with this effort. Could our institution help fill the database? Are there any students who can help by doing (field-)recordings as assignments? Recordings of instruments? Do you have a large batch of usable sounds? Anything goes as long as the sounds can be released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License.
